Developed in conjunction with the Russian Flagship Program at Indiana University, the Workshop's Level 2 Russian course is an intensive immersion program equivalent to the 2nd-Year Russian sequence in the Indiana Russian Flagship program.
This course is designed for students with Intermediate Low proficiency who wish to solidify their speaking, reading, and writing skills. Students who complete the course successfully will reach Intermediate Mid proficiency.
Working with authentic materials showcasing culture from across the Russian-speaking world, students will develop the linguistic and cultural skills they need in order to function effectively in a Russian-speaking environment and successfully navigate day-to-day interactions. They will be able to understand authentic materials, including news, videos, podcasts, chats, stories, articles on familiar topics, etc.
Russian 2 combines 4 hours a day of classroom instruction, 30-45 minutes a day of micro-group training, including one-on-one conversation practice and pronunciation tutoring, as well daily Russian-language activities led by facilitators representing Russian-speaking communities from around the world.
